This week, the Denver Broncos made their way to the White House in our nation's capital, a journey made by only champions of various sports across all levels.

Denver is coming off a win in Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers, and former Michigan State Spartans receiver Bennie Fowler was part of that championship-winning team. He was also part of the team's trip to Washington, D.C. to be honored.

The Big Ten Network twitter page also posted this video of his memorable 87-yard score against Northwestern during his Spartan glory.

In 2015, Fowler played in all 16 regular season games for the Broncos, ending the year with 16 grabs for 203 yards. In the Super Bowl, Fowler caught a 2-point conversion pass to give Denver a 24-10 lead in the fourth quarter, which ended up being the final pass Peyton Manning ever threw.

Fowler also made two big grabs for 35 yards in Denver's 23-16 comeback win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Divisional Round. Both catches came on separate drives that led to 11 points, including his big 31-yard grab in the fourth quarter on the Broncos' go-ahead scoring drive.

While Bennie clearly didn't put up big numbers, he played a significant part in helping Denver win the Super Bowl, so a big congrats to him on earning a ring and getting to make that dream trip to D.C.
